In a sleepy Pembrokeshire spot, yet still close to the regions finest sights, Dews Lake is ideal for campers exploring West Wales
First time campers? The family not bowled over by the idea of a weekend camping in rural Wales? Then Dews Lake Farm might be the ideal choice for your first under-canvas foray. The site provides pitches for ‘traditional campers’ and ‘glampers’ alike on a friendly, authentic working farm teeming with wildlife and countryside character. Tucked away in sleepy Pembrokeshire, yet still conveniently close to the regions finest sights (including Manorbier Castle & Freshwater East Beach), Dews Lake Farm is the perfect choice for campers wanting to enjoy the wonders of Western Wales and its remarkably unspoilt landscapes. Upon arrival you realise everything here is relaxed and pretty low-key. There’s no designated pitches, just rock up and find your corner of tranquillity. You’ll find decent facilities here too with pipping hot showers, 16-amp electric hook-up points (for caravans) and handy phone charging stations. Dews Lake’s patch of flat green farmland sits only six miles from the loveable bucket-and-spade town of Tenby. Many literary greats such as Roald Dahl, Jane Austen and Beatrix Potter have taken inspiration from its elegant white Georgian mansions, glorious hilltop views and traditional fishing village feel. Today, Tenby is a postcard-maker's dream and delights visitors who stroll leisurely through its medieval streets lined with cosy pubs, quirky gift shops and tempting ice-cream parlours. As luck would have it, Dews Lake is also on the doorstep of one of Europe’s finest beaches, Barafundle Bay. Reached after an invigorating half-hour cliff-top trek, the immaculate, golden sands and turquoise blue waters give it a paradisiac feeling, often drawing comparisons to the Caribbean. Out of season you often have the place to yourself, apart from a few brave surfers who tackle the choppy Irish Sea. From Barafundle, take a delightful little stroll to Bosherston lily ponds. The best time to visit is in late spring or summer when the lilies are in flower and become home to an eclectic array of wildlife, including otters, swans, herons, dragonflies and 'robbing' robins who won't hesitate to pinch food right out of your hands.

Grass Pitch - Non Electric
Defo coming again next summer!
We had such a lovely time camping at Dewslake Farm. We went as a family of 3 and our little boy was off playing with other kids within minutes of arriving. The kids all played games in the middle of the field and at one point a mass game of rounders happened with more than half the families in our field taking part! The site staff were really helpful and the cafe was excellent - probably the best campsite cafe I've ever used! Our friends joined us for the second half of our stay are were able to pitch right next to us which was great. The onsite activities for kids looked great but unfortunately our kids were all too young for them (from aged 7) which was a shame and we didn't know this in advance. No onsite shop so expect a drive to get even the basic supplies but not a problem as we went out most days. Lovely beaches nearby and nice wooded walks which was nice given the heat. We are definitely going again next year!🤩👌

6 - Bell Tent - Standard (5m)
Great glamping
Overall we had a good time, the tent was really well equipped and the cooking essentials we hired were great. I know its hard when everyone is camping but I would have liked it if the showers, toilets and kitchen had just been a little cleaner and nicer somehow, that would have elevated the experience a little. However we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would go back again. Also the onsite cafe was fantastic, great staff and lovely food.

1 - Glamping Cabin 1
Family getaway
Cabins are quite small not really space for luggage. Good sized double bed with two single beds beneath which give you a bad back after a couple of days. The showers are great very spacious family’s showers and also individual ones. The kitchen is good could do with more fridges and freezers for campers belongings., but very helpful to be able to do washing up under shelter. The on-site cafe has changed from last year. The main reason I decided to come here was because of the vegan/vegetarian cafe, however it has now changed and the menu is not so great for vegans I much preferred their beyond burger which was served in the bubbling cauldron cafe. A very beautiful campsite with an amazing view to wake up to every morning, I would recommend as the location is good not to fair from beaches, my favourite one being broad haven. The supermarkets are around 15 min drive, we headed to Pembroke dock to stock up on food and drinks.

Grass Pitch With Electricity
The pitch was great, load of space around the tent it felt private and a great big field to play in. The facilities were a bit tired, but always clean. All in all, we had a great stay and we’d head back.

Grass Pitch - Non Electric
Great location, vibe and facilities
This is a great campsite and I've camped everywhere. There is a lovely chilled vibe with minimum ruleage plastered around the site. I think this vibe meant people were respectful and we had no trouble with noise from other campers. Lots of space with picnic benches dotted around the site that you can incorporate into your space. Useful when the table you have brought keeps collapsing. Good facilities. Nice showers. Kitchen with freezers and fridges. If you go down the glamping route the bell tents are pitched in a field with great views. There is an onsite cafe which does really good food. Pizzas. Slap up breakfasts. Cake. Cue uber cool vibes for that too. The site is in a good spot for exploring the area. We were never more than 10 mins from great beaches. I will definelty be going back.

3 - Glamping Cabin 3
Excellent campsite, loads of space and privacy, clean facilities, great cafe, close to all the best beaches! What else can you ask for?
From the host
Dewslake Farm is on the outskirts of Lamphey village with countryside views overlooking the Pembrokeshire National Park. On-site you'll find several grass pitches for tents, campervans and caravans as well as glamping bell tents and bunkhouse cabins along with a fantastic cafe catering for all tastes.
Nearby attractions
Food The Cafe at Dewslake campsite offers stunning vegan and vegetarian food to campers and visitors alike.  Open during the season for breakfasts, lunches, afternoon teas and dinners with well loved pizza or curry nights with music. Paddle West Activities These guys offer fun outdoor activities, on site archery, assault courses and  campfires in the kids club and take people paddle boarding or canoeing in other great locations. Tickle Tunes A wonderful pre-school age activity with lots of singing and dancing to some great music.  Geared to the under fives in sunshine with space for the little ones to play is so sweet. Lamphey Walled garden A pretty place to spend an hour wandering around the plants and talking with the lovely owners Chris and Tina Veg box Right next door is an organic veg box scheme who will deliver to the site for you if you want to enjoy the very freshest of vegetables and salads for your stay. Local activity providers There are so many local activity providers that we can’t name them all but Swim Pembrokeshire offer safe lessons in open water swimming or Pembrokeshire Bike Hire will drop off bikes (including electric ones) here at site for you to make those adventure days even better. If you want other sports, look at the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter Group where you’ll find ethical providers who have signed up to care for our wonderful Marine National Park, the only one in the UK. Walks It’s 3 miles to walk into Pembroke or the same to walk to Freshwater East but on site we have a pretty nature area and it’s only a mile or so to the pub, garage shop or hotel restaurant in Lamphey.
